Paulo Dybala informs he is still feeling the impact of the coronavirus crisis first hand but is relishing the forthcoming resumption of Serie A.

Paulo Dybala immediately went into self-isolation after confirming on March 21 that he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini had contracted COVID-19.

Dybala’s diagnosis saw him become the third Juventus player to be tested positive for the disease, with Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi being the two other unfortunate ones.

It took two confirmed negative tests from the club and until May 6 for the Argentine to finally return to training.

Serie A was one of the first European leagues to suspended its football matches but is now edging closer to return after three months of inaction.

The midfielder, who has been a key cog in Maurizio Sarri‘s team this term, reckons he is not quite back up to full speed just yet but is thrilled by the return of Italian top-flight football.

“I had coronavirus, but I feel much better now,” Dybala said during an Instagram Live session [via Goal].

“I am still not quite at 100 per cent, but I’m pretty good.

“We’ve started training again and football is coming back, so soon we will be able to do what we love the most. I hope we can have fun and entertain.”
